Jan Francis reads Johanna Spyri's classic tale of the adventures of a little Swiss girl. Ever since her mother died, Heidi has been looked after by her aunt Dete. But now Dete is moving to Frankfurt, and Heidi must go and live with her grandfather in a hut high up in the Swiss mountains. There she meets Peter the goatherd and his blind grandmother, and the three become great friends. Heidi loves her new, carefree life - but then her aunt returns to take her away from everyone she loves.
Will she ever come back to the mountains again?

This is an excellent introduction to a classic story for 4-5 year olds. The story is well abridged and fits in the 1-2 hour length that works well at this age. The narrator also does the voices for characters well. My 4.5 year old daughter and her friend have listened to this audiobook over and over again and often play 'Heidi and Clara', sometimes while listening to the story. It's a great way to be able to introduce my daughter to more complex and classic stories, although I read an extremely abridged version to her first to get her started.
